Holy Ghost Testimonial

Parishioner at St. Mary’s Church

Alton, IL

Just wanted to “Thank you” all for your dedication and service doing God’s will. We at St. Mary’s in Alton feel so blessed to have our Oblates when we so many parishes are struggling for priests. May God Bless you All, and again Thanks and prayers.

Parishioner at St. Peter Chanel Church

Hawaiian Gardens, CA

In my travels in the USA and Europe, I have never seen a Catholic church that has so many wonderful activities in spirituality, frequent sacrament of reconciliation, very good dress code, daily adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and devote parishioners, as well as outstanding homilies.

It’s been a privilege and joy for me to attend so many of your outstanding events. I don’t believe one could find a Catholic church anywhere as vibrant, dynamic and spiritual. The members of St. Peter are truly blessed.

My most sincere thanks to all the priests and staff at St. Peter’s who make your parish so very special.
